WHAT MAKES STAR LOUNGE OF THE DISTRICT BORACAY DIFFERENT?

WHAT MAKES STAR LOUNGE OF THE DISTRICT BORACAY DIFFERENT?

There are only a few in-house restaurants that serves Brunch Buffet.  For an island known for parties and non-stop drinking sprees, mornings would never be for night owls.  When we were in Bali, Indonesia, the general manager of the hotel where we are staying once said, that with the many hotels that sprout in the island, in order to stay at par or ahead of the competition, the offer for breakfast matters.  And the same holds true for Boracay Island.

The Star Lounge of The District Boracay is one good choice for a dining experience while at the island.  The choice is not only for breakfast but an all-day fine and casual dining to suit every guests’ preference.

Brunch Buffet

Every night has been dedicated to partying while at the island.  Except for the last day where we are required to wake up early to catch the first flight to Manila via Caticlan, our morning routine has been to take the brunch buffet instead of the usual breakfast buffet. 

International and Filipino breakfast favorites with hot and cold selections, fruits, pastries, stir-fry noodles, pasta and Chinese cuisine favorites were among the selection.  The open kitchen where guests can make their own pasta and crepe is available from 10:30AM to 1:00PM, in time for our brunch experience.

Nursing a hangover is made manageable with this kind of meal to start the island exploration.  I am never used to heavy breakfast but while at the island, I refused to do what I am accustomed to.

Sunset Viewing with Cocktails

The Star Lounge extends to the bar and events roof deck.  Aside from the complimentary cocktails, there is a wide variety of drinks served, including fine wines and local beers.  And as we settled at one corner of the roof deck, we had a good vantage of the white beach, the towering coconut trees and the clear waters.  The perfect view of the sunset may have been elusive during the entire duration of our stay, but the bond with friends while drinking is priceless.

BBQ Buffet and Grilled Dinner

A night was dedicated to test the Weekend Grill Dinner of the restaurant which will be open to the public soon.  We were fortunate to have been invited to taste test what is about to be offered as our dinner.  BBQ samplers and anything cooked on charcoal will never go wrong with me.

Samples were likewise provided on skewers.  The aussie shrimp on the Barbie was my personal favorite, though all are delectable and gastronomically appealing.

For grilled to order dinner, options include: chicken, pork belly, baby back ribs, squid, prawns, Norwegian salmon fillet and local fish of the day (mackerel, marlin or tuna).  The choice of main course includes unlimited iced tea, soup of the day, garden salad, one siding (steamed rice or potato) and a choice of sauce – Bearnaise, lemon butter, soy and vinegar or mushroom.  A no-brainer I opted for the prawns as main course.

MY FAVORITE DISH - PRAWNS
Meduse Shisha

The Meduse is a unique shisha experience exclusively available in the country only at The District Boracay.  The state of the art shisha pipes used are manufactured by Meduse Design Ltd and are hand-made of Bohemian glass.  The philosophy is based on the innovative integration of traditional handicrafts along with the latest manufacturing technologies and techniques.  As relayed to us, the design is inspired by the elegant organic lines which are ubiquitous throughout underwater sea life.

Choices of fresh fruit are available that will be added to the glass corpus enhancing its flavor and adding an element to the tobacco mixture. The group tried the Citrus Gang (PhP2,000.00 + 450.00 for alcoholic version) – the aroma of lemon emanated as we take turns on smoking from the pipes. 

The Star Lounge has truly become our dining area for most of our stay at the Boracay Island.  With the many offerings it has and an elegant dining area conducive to dining and simply loitering, not to mention the panoramic view of the beach it provides, dining experience at The Star Lounge truly makes a difference.
